My Modus Operandi


This is a discussion


we are sharing ideas


My belief that the 21st century classroom is no longer a place
where the teacher reigns supreme, but a place where genuine
collaboration, differentiation and real learning takes place.


Interactivity is the in
-
thing


We are sharing knowledge


I bring the Topics & we all contribute


Focus on few Industries


End of Presentation 5 to 10 people share with us their take out

THE TOPIC


The state of the art technology in
modern day business


But it is more ICT & state of the art
technology in modern day business.


ICT IS IT


Focus on these Technologies &
what opportunities that exist for us.


ICT


IS IT


Helmut (1998), cited by Akpore (1999), states that of the
technological changes that have
influenced
our lives in
recent years, information
communication technology
(
ICT
)
has had the greatest impact. This will
continue
at least until
the end of the first half of the century, when other major
technological breakthroughs
in the area of new materials,
biotechnology, or energy, may provide entirely new ways of
living

Akpore is
partly right ICT, ICT has and will continue to
change the way we do business & it will continue to shape
the way we do business.


We ignore it at our peril

The OLD WAY


Across Africa there is a vibrant
culture of people creating things.
Hardware products. It’s rarely
glamorous as our inventors and
micro
-
entrepreneurs innovate on
products due to necessity


there
simply aren’t enough jobs and
they need to feed their families.



(These are generally not as
educated as me & you. Apostle
Safo
, the
Margazine

people)


Regardless of the reasons why
they do it, what this has created is
a culture of innovation.

The OLD WAY
-



When you have a problem
in Africa, there isn’t another
option, you either improvise,
adapt and overcome, or you
die. You don’t give up, you
figure out a way to make
things work.


A lot of us the graduates are
not leading the innovation,
though that is changing with
your group, but we need to
do more

The OLD WAY
-



This environment has bred a generation
of problem solvers: people confront
immense challenges and keep at it until a
solution is found.


It might not always be the most beautiful
solution (usually the finishing isn’t up to
par), but it works and that’s what
matters.


Concurrently, we’re a net importer of
fabricated products from around the
world. We might make some of our own
software now, but we do little to nothing
with hardware. How can we be the
masters of our own future if we don’t do
any meaningful levels of fabrication?


That is what we need to push for

The New Paradigm


We should do it differently


innovate based on the Universal education we
have acquired.


Job Creators instead of Job Seekers


Do not join the Unemployed Graduates Association


Change the Status Quo, where the school dropout employ us & we make all
the money for them


Do not become like me


all the few assets I have I got from my private
business not from working for others, yet I have left that still pending.


It should be


Entrepreneurialship & if not then at worst


Intrepreneurialship


There is hope for the future

The New Role of the
School Leaver


There are a lot of Challenges in Ghana, but they are all
Opportunities for great Wealth.


The Returns are greater here

billion dollar valuations
in half the time of their predecessors ... and all without an IPO

Mobile will be more transformative than the web ... because mobile devices
are always with your customer.


Mobile
is going to evolve at a much faster pace ... because we’ve learned a lot
from the web. In fact, mobile shipments outpaced desktop/laptop shipments
last year. The race is on.
